NHS 111 is a new service that has been introduced to make it easier for you to access local NHS HEALTHCARE SERVICES. You can call 111 when you need medical help fast but itís not a 999 emergency. NHS 111 is a fast and easy way to get the right help, whatever the time.
East Riding of Yorkshire Council provides a range of services connected to your life, including caring for yourself and family members, caring for the wider community, legal and consumer advice and information about citizenship
Dr Denness is qualified to train GP Registrars.  They are qualified doctors who have chosen to train to become GPs. They will spend 6 or 12 months with us and will see patients during this time. 

During their time with us they are asked to video some of their consultations. Also, we take 4th year medical students from the Hull / York Medical School (HYMS) who learn alongside our clinical staff. 

We are grateful for your help with our teaching but if you do not wish for a student to be present or you are not happy with your consultation being videoed, please do not be afraid to refuse.
If you take antibiotics when you do not need them, you could be helping to make bacteria resistent to them.  It means that the drugs can no longer kill the bacteria they are meant to fight.  Your GP will advise when it is appropriate to take antibiotics
Help US to help YOU
Your family doctor is a key member of a highly trained team of health professionals working in primary care. Together with colleagues elsewhere in the NHS, your health is their concern. 

GPs only have so much time available to see patients in the surgery and on home visits so YOUR DECISION on when it is appropriate to consult a doctor in particular can have a really important effect on how well the system works for everyone when they really need to be seen

Many health problems are of a very minor nature and can be either self-treated, by simple remedies available at a local pharmacy

If you are uncertain when it is appropriate to see a doctor or if you just need health advice the new NHS 111 service is available whenever you pick up the phone and simply dial 111.  Your good judgement can improve the service for yourself & others.
CARE.DATA Data to HSCIC to improve health services
How information about you helps
us to provide better care
The way information is shared between health care organisations has undergone change and more improvements are on the way.

Please download the various information leaflets which provide details about health care records and sharing. If you wish to opt-out of any aspect of data sharing please use the forms on this page and return to the surgery. Contact us if necessary for further information.
What is EDSM Enhanced Data Sharing Model?
On a patient by patient basis, eDSM uses a secure computer system that allows the sharing of full electronic records accross different NHS care services. It allows the patient to decide whether to share information out of an organisation and to control what information comes in to that organisation. The patient's decisions can be changed at any time.. This system is currently being rolled-out.
